Dr. John Brown Miller is a global expert on infrastructure, with an eye on efficiency and value. He has a thirty-five year focus on bringing practical business, legislative, and contractual solutions to the world’s burgeoning public infrastructure needs.

He was a reporter on the American Bar Association’s 2007 Model Code for Public Infrastructure Procurement project (MCPIP), which provides “best practices” in procurement to America’s 90,000 state and local governments. The Code is designed to help officials, vendors, and contractors ensure integrity in infrastructure delivery and finance, while helping taxpayers receive real value for money. The competitive principles in the Code have been adopted by many hundreds of state and local jurisdictions. He has consulted for the United Nations on best procurement practices.

Dr. Miller offers a practical combination of good procurement practices with enterprise risk management (ERM) to produce unique opportunities for massive gains in value for money. This combination creates the flexibility governments, vendors, and contractors need to get effective action, at the right time, in the right place, at the right cost – across entire public infrastructure networks.  

Dr. Miller was professor of construction management and civil and environmental engineering at MIT, writing two textbooks in the field of infrastructure delivery and finance.  He and his clients have been involved in some of the largest public infrastructure projects/networks in the world.  He is an elected fellow of the American Bar Association, its Section of Public Contract Law, and the American College of Construction Lawyers, in which he has served in leadership positions.  He is a prolific writer in this space, with more than 100 scholarly articles and case studies, and numerous invited presentations in every corner of the world.
